Congregational prayers at Imam Khomeini’s shrine

The prayers on Thursday evening at the holy shrine of the late founder of the Islamic Republic was led by Ayatollah Seyyed Hassan Khomeini.

This comes as the holy mausoleum is hosting pilgrims and tourists from around Iran and elsewhere during the auspicious occasion of Nowruz, which commences the start of spring and marks the beginning of the Persian year.

The holy site has been turned into social, cultural and spiritual ceremonies in recent years.

The victory of the Islamic Revolution under the wise leadership of Imam Khomeini changed the balance of power in the strategic Middle East Region and boosted the spirit of the oppressed nations across the globe.

The Islamic Revolution in 1979 resulted in collapse of dictatorial regime of Shah, and brought about freedom, independence and civil liberties for the Iranian nation. The Islamic-democratic system also cut the influence of colonial powers from the country.
